Well I heard from the doctor and the fluid mass they see on the CT scan is called Lymphocele which is fluid from the lymph nodes that were removed for biopsy. He said it is fairley common and normally desolves on its own, if not they have to drain it. This is also the cause of my needing to urinate every 1 1/2 to 2 hours because it is large and pressing on the bladder. They said if there is any pain, fever or chills to let them know because then it is infected.
This is not causing the burning however that is being caused by the slight leak I have from a blown stitch. They said the leak is walled off and has not gotten any bigger but will take more time to heal.
I guess I just have to wait and see what happens they said to check back in a week or so. I guess it is a miracle that I only have a little dripping and down to one pad at night and one thin pad during the day. I guess this is a new situation since I did not hear from anyone else who had this problem.
